Virgin Mobile

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | SE Hawthorne | SE 32nd, Portland, OR 97214 |

Very happy with the Virgin Mobile reception; routinely get 3 bars or more inside my house, never drop or miss a call. Contrast to previous AT&T / Cingular, where we never had even one bar, and had to leave the house and go to the end of the block to check voicemail or make a call.

I still have an AT&T contract. When I got it, 1.5 years ago, had only 1-2 bars at home. There was a sudden increase to full bars when purchased by Cingular. I have had no problems with dropped calls, but could have a clearer connection.

I can be sitting at my home office with the cell phone right next to me and the next thing I know it beeps indicating a message. Phone never rang! It takes at least 3 calls to complete a call with the constant call dropping and at various times I have been told that the automated message that Cingular uses during peak phone usage (8-9AM, 12N and 5-6PM) says my phone has been disconnected. I guess all circuits are busy since we all are trying to constantly call back our parties! Repeatedly visited Cingular store and requested that they check service in area - then called Customer Care and was told all those trips were wasted because "those people are just salespeople". Finally asked to be released from contract - 2 hours on phone standing in their company store and connected to customer care - final result - pay the $150 for cancellation. I said send me a final bill - and when it finally came it did not reflect my last payment and two weeks later they sent me to collection - even though the bill was not yet due!

I feel like I'm chanelling the Verizon guy: "Can you hear me now?" No, they can't! Reception is fine throughout most of the city but in NE it's almost non-existant. 2 bars on average with a lot of cut outs. It's a joke. I hear Cingular and Verizon are better... they're also a lot more expensive. Good luck!

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Division | Se 32nd, Portland, OR 97202 |

incredibly frustrating. there seems to be a dead zone from about 30th to 41st on division and between division and hawthone between the amse avenues. seems to be affected by weather, chance and how important the call is. does any provider have good service in this area?

Almost no cell phone reception for any company here! This isn't the middle of the woods. The phone will usually ring and then as soon as I answer, the call fails.

Worked OK for last 11 months since I got the phone. Sometime between Dec 1st and 15th, dropped to 2 bars on the phone until you hit SEND, where you get none and phone tells you the call failed. After hitting END, phone display changes from "Cingular" to "No Service" or "Emergency Only". When I called, they sent me a replacement phone, which behaved exactly the same way -- it clearly isn't the phone, but the service. Maybe Verizon is right: its the network.

Cingular used to have great reception in downtown Portland, but starting on December 13, a cell tower has been out. Now I can not make any calls or received any. Most of my friends use Cingular and have the same problem (text messages still works sometimes). The customer service agent told me she had no timeline of when it will be corrected and wasn't even aware of the problem until I called. This is the worst service I have ever encountered. They should have at least notified their clients of the problem when it occured and should correct it in a timely fashion.
